The basics: The 40-year-old Pacquiao (61-7-2) is taking on the 30-year-old Thurman (29-0, 22 KOs) in a battle of WBA welterweight title-holders. Both fighters are coming off victories — Pacquiao having defeated Adrien Broner in January while Thurman had his own decision win over Josesito Lopez in January. That fight for Thurman, however, was his first in 22 months as he had battled back from injury. Pacquiao had scored a TKO win over Lucas Matthysse and suffered a stunning decision loss to Jeff Horn during that time.
